Accent and dialect

In this course, I use the term DIALECT to mean a language variety which differs from other language varieties in grammar and vocabulary; and ACCENT to mean the way any dialect is pronounced (note that the word 'accent' has several other meanings ... reach for the dictionary...)

Regional variation in the English verb qualifier system

Nonstandard dialects often use the same form for past tense and past participle of irregular verbs for which the standard language has distinct forms. One possible reason would be that some speakers have a nonstandard system of verb qualifiers (tense, mood, and aspect markers) in which the past tense/past participle distinction is functionally redundant.

Coexistent Systems in African American English

This contribution to the study of African American Vernacular English [AAVE] is an interpretation of the special linguistic features of this dialect in the light of its co-existence with other co-territorial dialects of English. It is far removed from the notion that AAVE can be seen as a system in itself, analyzed without reference to other dialects, which has been repeated theme of research in this area from the very beginnings to the present day.
